Debra Price, Sam Houston State University

Written by teachers for teachers, Reading First in the Classroom provides a comprehensive exploration of Reading First legislation. Documenting all of the critical aspects of the legislation, the book includes a rich description of the act and its implications. It also delves into the true meaning of scientifically based research, how to find it, and how to evaluate it. Perhaps most importantly, all of the components of reading instruction are explained in full, including critical aspects related to assessment. The book provides historical perspectives and discusses the implications and issues surrounding the legislation.


  • Includes a detailed overview of each literacy component, along with its scientifically based research support and connections to practice.
  • Each section ends with a checklist helping teachers assess their use of each element in their own classroom.
  • Provides key information about the expectations of grants for scientifically based reading programs, assessments, professional development, and partnerships.
  • Offers practical suggestions for teachers in working with state Reading First efforts.
